HK Gruber is not only one of the most prolific composers of our time; he is also in great demand internationally as a conductor and chansonnier. Gruber’s musical roots reach back to his time in the Vienna Boys’ Choir. Working alongside students from the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna (mdw) he is reworking his hit “Frankenstein!!“ especially for MuTh. At its premiere performance, he not only takes the conductor’s baton, but also plays the part of the Chansonnier. Beethoven’s also enjoyed success in his lifetime with his Septet. A six-movement work, it still captivates audiences today with its spiritedness, delicacy and virtuosity.
